Abstract: It is well known that acupuncture is effective for
gastric disease in human. We have observed the effect of acupuncturing
"Zhongwan" "Neiguan" "Zusanli" on fluorohistochemical changes of G cells of
antral mucosa in 42 patients with gastric disease. The results show that
after acupuncture treatment the amount of fluorescent 6 cells and the
fluorescent intensity of gastrin in the G cells were obviously decreased in
patients with duodenal ulcer, as compared with that before acupuncture
treatment. However, the amount of G cells was increased by acupuncture
treatment in patients with chronic atrophic gastritis. These data indicate
the acupuncture may regulate c cell from abnormal to normal condition in
gastric mucosa of gastric disease.
